RIP: Barbara Long

It is with sadness that we share the passing of former Andover Town Mayor, councillor Barbara Long.

North West Hampshire Liberal Democrats announced the news on social media this morning:
“It is with great sadness that I have to announce the death of Councillor Barbara Long, former Mayor and Chair of Andover Town Council. Barbara was a hard working local councillor and campaigner who did much to improve the lot of Andover residents over the years, especially through her work with charities and community groups...”

Cllr Long, independent councillor for Andover St Mary’s was Mayor of Andover in 2018 and 2020.

Our thoughts go out to husband Nigel, the rest of her family and many friends.
